It’s been my joy to lead this church since December 2009. I’ve loved getting to know the people here. They are a wonderful group with real servant hearts who love Jesus and want to serve Noosa. I love helping people understand who Jesus is and it’s a privilege for me to explain the Bible each Sunday and show how God speaks to us to shape and transform our lives. I married Susan in July 1989 and we have been blessed with three beautiful children who are all now finished school and Uni.  On our day off, Susan and I love to walk in the national park; love finding a good coffee and I enjoy exploring the world through the internet.

I came to Noosa in 2012 to help kids and their families to know Jesus and to grow with him. I have been married to Heather, who is studying Education, since 2000, and we have three amazing children: Aidan, Claudia, and Leo. It blows me away, that the God who made the mountains and planets also made each one of us, and that he loved us so much that he sent his Son for us. I don’t think I will ever get tired of telling people about it! I love cycling, sharing belly laughs with Heather, stories with my kids, and coffee with just about anybody. Mobile: 0427 197 206

When my husband Chris and I relocated to Noosa from the Boston area in March 2015, we thought we were moving primarily to be near the Gilbert family. And that’s been true and wonderful. God’s ways, though, are much greater than our plans and so I confess I’m deeply humbled, grateful and even surprised to join the team of ministers at the Anglican Church of Noosa. I’ve worked as a writer, reporter, university professor, waitress and (bad) soccer coach, but never a coordinator for women in ministry—at least officially! Even so, I’ve always loved walking along side other women of faith who give so much to their families, careers and communities. I’ve also taught or served at various ministries and women’s conferences across the U.S. Now, whether meeting for coffee or worshipping God, talking about stories or walking the dog on the beach, I’m excited to see how the Lord Jesus will lead us together! And I’ll always be thankful that our brother and sister in law, Ross and Gillian Gilbert, invited us to worship here. We found our church home the first time we walked through the door. Mobile: 0456 502 121

It is such a privilege to live and work in this beautiful part of God’s world. My passion is to help people discover Jesus Christ and grow in their knowledge and love of Him. In January 2017 my family relocated from Melbourne, where I worked as an Anglican Minister in a large church in the south-eastern suburbs for 13 years. Prior to Melbourne we lived in Sydney, where I worked in the construction industry before retraining and working in full time Christian ministry, specifically with youth. My beautiful wife, Bek, is a physiotherapist and together we have two terrific, school-age daughters: Jazlyn and Indi. I love camping and 4-wheel driving, the beach, good food, meeting new people, and spending time with family and friends. I am excited be the Community Chaplain at St Andrew’s Anglican College, working in partnership with the Anglican Church of Noosa, and look forward to meeting you soon.

Associate Minister

I believe our ministry is centred on relationships and I want my relationship with God and with you – and your relationship with God to flourish – and I will do everything I can to help make that happen.  I work alongside my beautiful wife Tammy (a midwife).  I trained in Brisbane and have previously been a State School Chaplain, Chaplain at St Hilda’s Girls School (both on the Gold Coast) and have worked in two Parishes, most recently Trinity at Robina.  I love worshipping God at Noosa, it is a really fun and joy-filled place.  I enjoy ministering with people and  children of all ages and am excited by what this Church is already doing as well as its continued potential and am honoured to be a part of it.  I unwind by swimming, watching and playing AFL and enjoy the physical exertion of acrobatics.  My day off is spent with my wife and our darling daughter.
